The question of what the church looks like in the twenty-first century perplexes many people, including us.
We believe that God has been at work in his church unravelling our past understandings of church and inviting us to imagine what church could be in the twenty-first century for a new generation of people.
We know that we are not in a time of temporary exile from our previous experiences of church, we are in a new era, which we embrace with hope.
We are on a shared journey to discern what the Spirit is up to ahead of us and to join God in those places.
With trust in God and deep humility, we venture into the unknown.
Spiritual Growth covers key elements of the life of the Christian Church, including discipleship, bible studies, developing spiritual leaders and identifying people who have a calling on their lives for future ministry and mission engagement. As One Congregation in Four Locations, Southside seeks to build our unified identity through our spiritual commitment, by developing ourselves to discipleship we can find out more about our identity in Christ and as members of this unique community in the life of our church.

There are a number of styles of worship offered through Southside Uniting Church.
Our services run for between 60 t0 90 minutes. We sing, pray, hear scripture read and reflect on it's meaning for our daily living. During our Tarragindi and Mt Gravatt morning worship services there is a children's program (during school terms). At Yeronga and Holland Park we assist children to worship with their parent or care giver.
Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. We may offer it at other times.
Our worship in each of our communities may be different, but in all of them we are offering worship to God that is vibrant, Spirit-filled, relevant and Christ-centred.
Jesus tells us that the church "is the light of the world" (Matthew 5:14).
Southside Uniting Church takes seriously this charge to be active in sharing Christ's love locally, nationally and internationally.
